Love This…

Happy Friday blog friends! I am looking forward to a quiet weekend – maybe a trip into downtown Zurich, some walks and, fingers crossed, a few minutes to get inky. What about you?

LoveThis

I made this card using a Studio Calico sketch – I found the sketch really intimidating, but glad I pushed through as I like the result. The products are a real mix of elements – some American Crafts Dear Lizzy die cut shapes, the November Simon Says Stamp kit with Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste papers, the Cut & Paste Project Life Mini Kit & a few bits from the Studio Calico Marks & Co Scrapbook Kit.

I am loving the look of journaling cards for the focal point on a card. The card is inspired by the look of some of the cards in the Handmade Cards special issue from Paper Crafts – this is hands down my favorite issue yet – I found it so inspiring (followed closely by the Color Inspiration issue from a couple years ago!).

I’m also sharing this for the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

Thats all for me today – gonna spend some quality time this afternoon with my very cranky little toddler ;-)

Just for Fun

Hey friends! So, the little one & I are back in Zurich. We arrived on Tuesday after taking a red-eye & it is good to be home & slowly getting into the swing of things. The 6 hour time change is proving exhausting for both of us – we’re spending a lot of time awake between the hours of 10pm and 2am, but thats life. It is definitely worth it for a month spent with family & friends back home.

Anyway, it has been FOREVER since I made a card just because. I have a to do list a mile long, but last night I felt the need to just create something. I used the sketch over at Case this Sketch for inspiration and pulled out the most recent Simon Says Stamp kit – quick & easy.

HI
Nothing too fancy and not the best card I’ve ever made, but still fun to use some new goodies. Alright, have a great Friday & thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

Morning! Very quick post this morning! I recently received my Simon Says Stamp June card making kit – let me just say getting monthly kits is so much fun! It definitely keeps me inspired & knowing I will get a box every month really feeds my craft supply addiction (not sure thats a good thing though!).

Anyway, I made this card using the Case this Sketch design as inspiration. Love this mix of papers in the kit & thought I would also link this up for the Moxie Fab World Mixy Matchy Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by & come back later to check out a Wplus9 Paisley card. I can’t wait to get my hands on their new floral set, but it is sold out EVERYWHERE!
